  1. I've been receiving emails enquiring about the next availability of the Maestro. Here's a reply I've just sent to a customer in Italy...


    Hello Antonio,

    Thank you for the email.

    The model has been a great success and sold out. The manufacturer will be making another batch, but they won't be ready for about 6 weeks, owing to his other production commitments.

    I will list them back on the site when they next become available.

    Kind regards,



    Regards to all,

    If you've pre-ordered, don't worry! You'll have priority in dispatch.


    If you haven't pre-ordered, you can buy a model now off the site, and I'll post it to you as soon as possible after they arrive - sometime this week. There is bound to be big interest in these models so sooner rather than later would be the advice.


    Regards to all,


  3. Hi Frank,

    The Maestro arrived today and I'm very pleased with it.

    I've collected "hand-builts" for some years but now it is relatively hard to find white metal models of British subjects, actually made in the UK.

    This, excellent model ticks all the boxes and is good value, certainly compared to the price level of - - - - - - - - output these days.

    More please,

    Best regards



  4. Received this email this morning from a regular customer...


    "Many Thanks again Frank, Just received the new Hastings No 2 Austin Maestro Model No 2 of 100 in Azure Blue this morning, What an impressive Model it is, backed by your usual Great Friendly Service, both I thoroughly recommend. G-----"


    Many thanks to you all. Your comments (good or bad) are greatly appreciated.








  5. ... are these 100% unashamedly nostalgic models of classic commercials from our childhoods!


    Be honest - who doesn't remember swigging 'Tizer - the Appetizer' orange-coloured pop, as a kid? Or the National Coal Board? Or the Milk Marketing Board?


    This range of classic models are a joy - I've started collecting them myself, as my dad was a coalman!


    Even if you don't collect commercials, I'm sure you'll be tempted by the odd one, or maybe two, to put on your mantlepiece.


    These wonderfully nostalgic, budget-priced models can be seen now in the new category 'CLASSIC COMMERCIALS'


    Start dropping the hint now to 'Father' Christmas!!
